Good. Real history for a change (instead of the nonsense in the NY Times and Washington Post).

The Widows Tears was sucessfully ascended By Dave Bengsten, Doug Nidever and Scott Brown. I just spoke with Doug and he said it was very demanding. Doug said it was solid WI5 with some of the climbing on rock in crampons rated M4. They did it in 11 pitches. This has got to be one of the boldest, thinnest (at the bottom) ascents ever of the WT. I saw a lot of photos of the climb and all I can say is that was one bad-ass ascent. Hip Hip Hooray!!! Great job men!

Awesome job guys! Way cool shots Chris. The bottom part looks sporty. The photos, with the tiny action figures, give great perspective of the scale of that unique and most proud route.

I'm impressed! I have dreams of climbing that ice one day.
I wonder what time of the day you started climbing and if you had to rap down to it? I'll find out one of these damn days.
good job with the H2O climbing
